Y9 Trip to El Alamein

Mon, 02/02/2015 - 08:33 -- Lydia Makram

The students have been looking at the major turning points in World War II. The battle of 1942 provided the Allies with their first significant victory, after which they never lost a  major battle. We visited all three cemeteries to see the difference in layout and style, reflecting perhaps the different attitudes to war and death. The newly refurbished museum also allowed the students to find out the role Egypt and Egyptians played in the battle.
